Buffalo is our home, and we hold it dearly in our hearts. We know our community is hurting and that now is not the time for our usual playful tone or to move on with business as usual. 

We condemn the heinous act of racism that happened in our community and all acts of racism. We stand firm in our commitment to building an inclusive community that welcomes and provides opportunities for all regardless of their race, religion, sex, ability, or any other factor.

We remain committed to being anti-racist. And will use our platform to speak out against it and take the actions necessary to generate and engage in inclusive conversations. Including sharing tools, resources and opportunities that help our community grow together in understanding and love.
